Anniversary Tribute - Poem by Rosann York

We gather here to honor them
Respecting love that gave us birth.
We are the branches of that stem
Who wish them long life on the earth.

It's not just what our law decrees
That calls us to bestow this praise;
But what we feel on bended knees
In gratitude for all their days.

We can't repay our loving home
Nor wisdom laced with aiming high.
We can recall the strength they've shown
And courage just enough to try.

Lord, grant this union as before
Has two hearts beat in harmony.
The years fulfilled and many more.
Their lives with us... our treasury!
